Excess Baggage

Haunted by memories best forgotten

Do I write about them to purge my soul

Or simply ignore these gnawing feelings in my gut

Burying them does no good

Because they always break through my cerebral barriers

And punish me even more as if to say “Told you so.”

I do not wish to invest the time delving into this foray

Nor do I wish to continue

Bearing this pain and sorrow

Oh but to find a simple solution

To stop this unwanted journey

But this is Life my friend

And so we must endure

Or suffer its consequences…

  1. I believe it’s better to vent, via verbally or pen to paper…I pray you are more at peace~
